before August, 1623, when the "Anne" came in, bringing 
Alice (Carpenter) Southworth., who married Governor Brad- 
ford, in August, 1623. Elizabeth (Alden) Pabodie died in 
Little Compton, E.I., May 31, 1717, in the 94th year of 
her age. "June 17, 1717, the 'Boston News Letter' of this 
date notices thus her death: 'Little Compton. 31. May. 
This morning died here Mrs Elizabeth Paybody, late wife 
of Mr W ,n Paybody in the 93 rd year of her age. She 
was the daughter of John Alden Esq. & Priscilla his wife, 
daughter of Mr William Mullins. This John Alden & 
Priscilla Mullins, were married at Plymouth in New Eng- 
land, where their daughter Elizabeth was born. She was 
exemplary, virtuous, and pious, and her memory is blessed. 
Her granddaughter Bradford is a grandmother.' " Mr. Pa- 
bodie and his wife are buried in the Little Compton Ceme- 
tery. In the "Division of Cattle," May 22, 1627, Elizabeth 
Alden is given as three years old, and she may have been 
considerably more. Just before her death, it was said to 

"Rise daughter, to thy daughter run, 
Her daughter's daughter hath a daughter." 

This was Mary Whiting, born January, 1716-17. 

We will have to concede that she zvas " the first white 
woman born in New England." Peregrine White was the 
first white male, and Oceanus Hopkins born on the passage. 
The gravestones of William Pabodie and his wife Elizabeth 
are in excellent preservation. The descendants of Elizabeth 
Alden have put up a monument and inserted the old stone 
in the west side. 

On all sides can be found her children and grandchildren. 
Towards the south lie John and Sarah (Pabodie) Coe ; 
nearer James and Ruth (Rogers) Bennett ; west of them 
Nathaniel and Sarah (Rogers) Searl and their children. 
North of the monument we find the stones of William and 
Rebecca (Pabodie) Southworth, wlrile north-east are the 


graves of the Churches, Joseph Church and the "Hon. 
Colonel Benjamin Church, Esq." and their families. 

Mrs. Jane G. Austin has written a very charming book, 
"Betty Alden," but in regard to Betty Alden's character, 
she drew entirely from her imagination, and "Betty's" de- 
scendants resent the title and description. They say she 
was "dignified, a woman of great character, and fine pres- 
ence, very tall and handsome. In height she resembled her 
father, John, the tallest in the Colony — also her brother, 
Capt. John Alden, known as the 'tail man of Boston.'" In 
the list of the first baptisms in the Little Compton church, 
1704, her name does not appear ; but some names must be 
lost, for sixty-nine were baptized, and only sixty-three are 
fiven. Her husband was one of the organizers of the church. 
But we must not lose sight of the sterling qualities of Will- 
iam Pabodie. He was "a man much employed in public 
affairs and of much respectability." J. O. Austin's Genea- 
logical Dictionary of Settlers in Rhode Island gives very 
much about him, gleaned from the public records. He was 
town clerk of Duxbury, after Alexander Standish. When 
he took the office the town records were burnt, and he en- 
tered his own marriage, and births and rnarri;iges of his 
children, very carefully. Would he had done as much for 
the other families in Duxbury. He lived in Duxbury, close 
to the Brewsters and Standishes, east of Eagle-nest Creek. 

There has been much discussion as to when he went to 
Little Compton to live. In "1(381 he and two others are 
appointed to run the line betwixt the lands of Sacon-nett and 
Punckateesett to Dartmouth bounds &c." Tradition also 
has it that John Coe went down by boat from Portsmouth to 
Saconnett, landed on the shore near where William 
Pabodie's house stands, and took up his abode with him 
while surveying the land, and meeting his daughter Sarah, fell 
in love with her, and married her. This must have been before 
or in 1681. William Pabodie may have put up his house and 
taken his daughter down there with him before he formally 


left. Duxbury. We find him in Duxbury, June, 1684, and 
do not have certain proof oi' his> living in Little Compton 
before 1685-6, when he was selectman. The house that he 
built is still standing, tradition says, built with money from 
John Alden, his wife's portion of her father's estate. They 
also say that John Alden visited his daughter in Little 
Compton . 

The house remained in the Pabodie family till 1740, when 
it was sold to Pardon Gray, and is now owned by Mr. 
George Gray, a descendant. 

The descendants of Elizabeth Alden have reason to be 
thankful that it is in such good hands. 

Mrs. Gray, descendant of the beautiful Quakeress, Inno- 
cent Rowland, cares for it reverent!} as historic ground, and 
renders the place beautiful with its lovely flowers. 

Some few years back a colonial window was thrown out, 
and in making these repairs, some very old forks and knives 
were found, and a spoon of peculiar shape and material. 
The spoon is of bronze, and resembles exactly the bronze 
spoons used in Holland about 1600. (See Harper's Magazine, 
1896, September.) We can imagine this spoon brought in 
the "Mayflower," remaining in Duxbury till the death of her 
father and mother, it comes to the oldest daughter. 

When William Pabodie went to Little Compton all his 
children were married but his youngest daughter, Lydia, 
and we think his son William went with him and lived with 
him. His son-in-law, William South worth, and wife 
Rebecca, followed him soon, and it was not long before a 
number of his grandchildren began to settle there. 

His will was dated May 13, 1707, proved Feb. 27, 1708. 
Executors, wife Elizabeth and son William. 

"To wife east -side of house at Little Compton and part of 
the land given formerly to son William ; all to be hers while 
widow, and also to her all household stuff, cattle, bills due, 
und money ; but if my wife choose to claim her thirds of mv 


land and house at Duxbury (which I sold Samuel Bartlett) 
and make use of them, thon my son Wm. to have the whole 
of housing and lands at Little Compton and to pay Samuel 
Bartlett. 50s. per year during time that his mother makes 
use of her thirds in Duxbury. To son Wm. after death of 
his mother, the part of house and land, bequeathed to her 
for life. To son Wm. other land & all my books tools &c. 
To three grandsons, Stephen Soutlrworth son of daughter 
Rebecca, deceased, and John and Wm. Pabodie sons of son 
Wm. land at Westquadnaug, (west of Providence) part 
purchased by son in law Wm. Fobes of Shuebal Painter and 
assigned by Wm. Fobes to my son in lawlchabod Wiswall." 
He mentions also son-in-law Edward Southworth. To 
daughters Mary, Mercy, Martha, Priscilla, Ruth, Sarah, 
Hannah, Lydia, Is each. To daughter Lydia one sett of 
green curtains, she having already received her part.

3 2 Elizabeth Pabodie (Elizabeth Alden 1 ) . 

Born hi Duxbury, April 24, 1647 ; died before 1707 ; mar- 
ried in Duxbury, Nov. 16, 1666, John Rogers, Jr., son of 
John and Ann (Churchman) Rogers, of Duxbury, a grandson 
of Thomas Rogers, who came in the "Mayflower." She was 
his first wife. After her death he married a widow, Marah 
(Browning) Newell, and on her death in 1739, administra- 
tion is granted on her estate to her sons, John and Moses 
Newell, of Brookline. John Rogers, Jr., was freeman 
1659; constable of Duxbury in 1670, June 5; surveyor of 
highways, 1671, Oct. 29, and several times afterwards. 
Constable again in 1681, June 7 ; and for several years he 
lived in Boston and Great Barrington. He owned some of 
the ili>:t lots in Tiverton and Little Ccmpton. lie died in 
1732. There has been much discussion as to the ancestry 
of the various John Rogerses, but Mr. Drummond's book is 
so conclusive, I have quoted his facts without comment. I 
refer readers to his book for further particulars. 

Children, probably born in Duxbury : 

14 3 Hannah Rogers, bom Nov. 16, 1668. 

15 John Rogers, born Sept. 22, 1670 ; died unmarried in

18 Sarah Rogers, born May 4, 1677. 

4 2 Mary Pabodie ( Elizabeth Alden 1 ) . 

Born in Duxbury, August 7, 1648; married, November 
16, 1669, Edward Southworth, son of Constant and Elizabeth 
(Collier) Southworth. She survived her husband. He was 
born "in Plymouth," says Winsor, but I think in Duxbury. 
His father, Constant, and Uncle Thomas were the only two 
children of Alice (Carpenter) Southworth, by her first hus- 
band, Edward Southworth. The Southworth pedigree can 
be found in Winsor's History of Duxbury. Constant South- 
worth married Elizabeth Collier, and had — 1. Edward; 2. 


Nathaniel, married Desire Gray ; 3. Mercy, married Samuel 
Freeman, 2d; 4. Mary, married David Alden; 5. Alice, 
married Col. Benjamin Church ; 6. Elizabeth, married 
William Fobes ; 7. William, married Rebecca Pabodie ; 8. 
Priscilla, married first, Samuel Talbot, and 2d, John Irish, 
Jr. Constant Southworth died Duxbury, 1679-80. His 
widow, Elizabeth, died in Bristol in 1682. Edward South- 
worth in his will gives : To Thomas Southworth land next to 
Capt. Alden's. To son Constant, land, etc. To son Ben- 
jamen. . To son John "I give my half purchased right of 
land at West Canoag, in the Government of Rhode Island, 
which I bought of Win. Pabodie, £ to sons & i to three 
daughters — Mercy Ayife of Moses Soule, Eliz. wife of Samuel 
Weston, & Priscilla Southworth. To grandson Cornelius

bury, June 7, 1771. 

5. 2 Mercy Pabodie l (Elizabeth Alden l ) . Born in Dux- 
bury, Jan. 2, 1649 ; married Nov. 16, 1669, in Duxbury, 
John Simmons, son of Moses and Sarah ( ) Simmons. 

Moses Simmons, formerly written Symonsen, was born in 
Leyden, of Dutch parents. This Symonson family has 
been traced from a Samuel Symonson, who came to New 
York in 1640, back two hundred years ; and Moses and, 
probably his brothers and cousins, Thomas, of Scituate, and 
John, of Freetown, were of this family. There was but one 
Moses Symonson, w T ho married Sarah, and came in the 


"Fortune." He was not married in 1627, but Lad, besides 
John, Rebecca, called "eldest daughter," married about 1655, 
as his first wife, John Soule (George), and mother of all 
his children but Joshua, and possibly Josiah. Mary 
married Joseph Alden about 1564. Elizabeth married 
Richard Dwell ey and Sarah married James Nash and Aaron. 

"Mr. Edward Winslow in his brief narrative written 
in 1646 states : f Moses Simonson was a child of one that was 
in Communion with the Dutch Church at Leyden ; and is 
admitted into church fellowship at Plymouth in New Eng- 
land, and his children to baptism as well as our own/ 
Young's Chronicles, page 393." 

Moses Symonson died in 1689, and speaks of himself as 
" very aged." 

John Simmons made his will in 1715, and speaks of wife 
Mercy, and youngest son Moses, a minor; sons John, Win,, 
Isaac, Benjamin, Joshua, Joseph, Martha, wife of Ebenezer 
Delano, and Rebeckah, wife of Constant Southworth. His 
widow Mercy's will, in 1728, speaks of sons John, Win,, 
Benj . , Joseph, Joshua, Martha, Rebeckah, and Moses. Book 
5, page 487, Plymouth Probate Records.

G. * Martha Pabodie l (Elizabeth Alden 1 ) . Born in Dux- 
bury, Feb. 25, 1650; died in Little Compton, R.I,, Jan. 
25, 1712. She married, first, in Duxbury, April 4, 1677, 
Samuel Seabury, son of John and Grace ( ) Seabury. 


He was born in Duxbury, Dec. 10, 1640, and died there, 
Aug. 5, 1687. She married, second, his second wife, Lieut. 
Win. Fobes, son of John and Constant (Mitchell) Fobes, 
born 1650, and died in Little Compton, R.I., Nov. 6, 

Wm. Fobes married, first, Elizabeth South worth, daughter 
of Constant and Elizabeth (Collier) Southworth. Her father 
was opposed to the match, and gave her her portion "pro- 
vided she do not marry Wm. Forbes, and if she do," then 
she was "to have 5 shillings." By Elizabeth Southworth 
Wm. Fobes had at least two children/ Phebe, born 1679, 
who married, first, a Smith, and then his son-in-law, Joseph 
Seabury, and Martha, born 1681, who married in Little 
Coinpron, in 1710, Josiah Sawyer, and had: John Sawyer, 
born 1711, died April 17, 1794; Mary Sawyer, born L. C, 
May, 1715; Abigail, born L. C, 1717; Priscilla Sawyer, 
born L. C, 1719 ; Josiah Sawyer, Jr., born 1728. As will 
be seen later, there was another Sawyer family similar to 
this, and it is very difficult not to confound them. 

Lieut. William Fobes was a man prominent in war and 
in peace, wealthy, of excellent standing in the community. 
I give below abstracts from his will, Taunton Prob. Rec, 
Book 3, page 112: 

ff I Wm. Fobes of Little Compton . . . Item. I give 
and bequeath to my son in law, Joseph Seabury, to him, his 
heirs, and assigns 15 acres of land in the " firste 24 Acre

to my son in law, Josiah Sawyer, to his now wife, Martha 
Sawyer, to have all the remainder of the 24 acre lott on the

tors, Sylvester Richmond and Joseph Seabury. Witnessed by 
Thomas Gray, Joseph Blackman, Thomas Church. Dated 
Nov. 4, 1712. Admitted to Probate, 4 Dec, 1712. There 
was considerable difficulty between Edward Southworth, 
father of Fobes, and the executors, but it was finally settled. 
Near to the Peabodie monument can be seen two slate 
stones : 

"Here lyeth buried the body of Win. Fobes Lieutenant, 
who departed this life in the G3 year of his age. Nov. ye 
6, 1712. 

"Here lyeth buried, Martha, late the wife of Wm. Fobes,

Thirty years ago Hon. A. C. Goodell contributed to the 
Essex Institute Historical Collections a copy of the first 
record-book of the court series in Essex County. This was 
the old Quarterly Court, and was succeeded by the County 

The record as printed in Volumes VII. and VIII. of the 
Collections is an exact copy of the record, which was itself a 
clean revised copy of the " waste book" kept by the clerk, 
in which were recorded the proceedings of the court, and 
contains a good deal of matter not carried to the record, 
especially depositions, many of which are recorded in short- 

The volume used by Mr. Goodell closes abruptly at the 
beginning of the session of the 22d Quarterly Court, 25th 
11th month, 1641. 

We shall print an abstract of the waste book, continuing 
from the 21st Court, and forming volume one of the records 
of the County Court, and commencing with the record on 
page 93. The files which at a later period are quite full, 


for this first part of their existence are lacking nearly all the 
original papers. 

We shall illustrate the record by abstracts from the files, 1 
which for many years were admirably arranged by Mr. W. 
P. Upham, in fifty-three volumes, and of which no official 
index or calendar exists. A few patient genealogists have 
made themselves more or less familiar with those valuable 
records, but their inaccessibility to most people, and the 
inability of the uninitiated to decipher this class of records, 
has prevented as general a use of the court records as should 
be made. 

In the early volumes of the Essex Institute Historical Col- 
lections have been printed the great majority of the probate 
documents on iile, but unfortunately that collection was not 

In these court records will be found not only criminal and 
civil suits at law, but probate proceedings for uearty forty 
years ; and in the files are the original returns of the various 
town clerks for Essex County towns, of the yearly births, 
marriages, and deaths, lists of freemen made, and other 

The abstract herewith presented will give every name in 
the original, and all matters of genealogical or historical 
value ; but in cases where nothing of general interest is found, 
merely the names of persons and localities mentioned will 
be printed. An examination of the first instalment will 
show more fully the scope of the work. 

The editor has attempted to verify doubtful readings, but 
now and then a name occurs which would probably be read 
differently by any two experts. Such cases will be duly 

Abbreviations and signs used will be easily understood, 
especially by those who are familiar with this class of records. 

AVhen the name of a part)- to a suit is starred * it indicates 
that that person had a verdict in his favor. 

i The first few papers in the files have heen abstracted and printed in Salem Press 
Historical Genealogical Uecord, Vol. IT. and Vol. I. of this publication. 


The following signs can be borne in mind : ** fornication, 
*** adultery. 

Quarter Courts were established 3 March, 163G, to be held every quarter in Ips- 
wich, Salem, Cambridge, and Boston. County Courts were established in 1639 in each 
county, but in Essex the term " quarterly court" seems to have lingered for several

The settlements of Essex county estates here presented are 
the earliest recorded in the record books at the registry at 
Salem, and are printed to show the scope of the proposed 
Essex probate series which have been advertised in this 
publication. When fifty subscribers are obtained, the first 
number of that series will be published, of which these few 
pages will form a part. At least one hundred subscribers 
are needed to meet the expenses of printing. Subscriptions 
should be sent to Eben Putnam, Box 5, Danvers, Mass. 

All the papers concerning an estate are grouped together 
under the first mention of that estate ; in many cases these 
papers are collected from several volumes as well as from the 
unrecorded papers in the files, the plan being to group to- 
gether all references wherever found. Every name occur- 
ring in the records or files will thus be saved and indexed.

Dedication of the Sullivan Monument at Durham, 
N.H., Sept. 27, 1894. Concord, KH., 1896. Published 
by the Slate. 8vo., pp. 108. 

This volume, which bears evidence of the careful super- 
vision of the accomplished historian and Secretary of State 
for New Hampshire, is a fit memorial to the honored soldier 
of the Revolution whose name adorns the cover — - Gen. 
John Sullivan. 

Sullivan was born of Irish parentage in that part of 
Dover now Somersworth, N.H., 17 Feb., 1740, and died 
23 Jan., 1705. 

Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents. Vol. III. 
Cleveland, Burrows Bros. 

In our last issue we noticed the preceding volumes in 
this series and in words of no mean praise. The present 
volume relates to Acadia, and covers the period from 1611 
to 1616, comprising documents numbered 13 and 14, being 
a letter and a relation by Pierre Biard. 

The notes appended to the volume by the editor show 
unusual research, and cover every variety in subjects. 

The experiences of Biard in Nova Scotia, the local troubles 
and jealousies, and his final capture by the English form 
several chapters of most interesting and romantic history. 

Early Settlers of Nantucket, their Associates and 
Descendants, compiled by Lydia S. Hinchman. Philadel- 
phia, J. B. Lippincott Co., 1896. 8vo., pp. 159. 


Miss Hinchman has given in an interesting manner the 
story of the beginnings of the settlement at Nantucket, to- 
gether with reliable accounts of the prominent families of 
the island, as stated in the title. The family sketches are 
not entirely confined to Nantucket inhabitants, and thus the 
work promises to be of great service to persons inheriting 
the blood of those hardy islanders. 

A good index is added, and in the appendix alphabetically 
arranged is an invaluable list of marriages and descents. 

John Allen axd Pkcebe Deuel, of Cambridge and 
Peru, N.Y., by Chas. J. North, Buffalo, for private 

This is a circular arranged as a pamphlet, giving a genea- 
logical account of one branch of the Allen family, sent forth 
in the hope of gathering additional information. 

Year-book Society Colonial Wars in Ohio, 1896. 

The registrar of the society, Thos. H. Norton, has ar- 
ranged in simple form the names of the colonial ancestors of 
the thirty-four members of his society. These lists are of 
great use in helping others to complete their records. 

Gleanings of the Richardson Family, being an 
account of one line of the descend/ nts of samuel 
Richardson, compiled by Joseph Hammond, of Swanzey, 
N.H. This pamphlet is the work of one who toward the 
close of a long and useful life has devoted much time to the 
history of families in which he is interested. A former 
genealogy of similar scope, but concerning the Hammonds, 
was issued a few years ago. Mr. Hammond was the chief 
supporter and earnest colaborator of the "History of 

Col. Thomas Goldtiiwaite — Was he a Tory ? by R. 
G. Carter, U.S.A. 

One hundred pages of proofs that he was not a Tory 


should convince most persons that Colonel Goldthwaite was 
loyp.l to his country, even though, like many other prominent 
and wealthy men, he was finally driven to seek protection in 

It is one of the sad features of any revolutionary enterprise 
that there are always self-assertive, independent men whose 
motives are misconstrued by some, and misrepresented by 
others, for temporary gain. Goldthwaite appears to have 
been a worthy man who had incurred the violent hatred of 
some of the popular and reckless leaders on the frontier and 
suffered accordingly. Not all of the doings of the more 
violent and ignorant among the "patriots" of '76 will bear 
close investigation without convincing a careful student that 
the colonies narrowly escaped great evils. 

A List of some American Genealogies v which have 
been printed in book form, arranged in alphabetical order by 
Thomas Allen Glenn. 8vo., cloth, gilt top, net $2.00. 
Henry T. Coates & Co., Philadelphia. 

Genealogical investigation has increased to such an extent 
in this country of late years that a compilation of titles of 
American genealogies is of great value to librarians, biog- 
raphers, and historians, as well as those engaged in the 
fascinating pursuit of genealogy. 

Cross-references, when more than one family may be found 
in the work, are given in many cases. 

This unique bibliography, a part of which has been appear- 
ing monthly in the " Literary Era," was compiled by Thomas 
Allen Glenn, an authority on American genealogy and her- 
aldry, and whose efforts as a student of Pennsylvania and 
Jersey family history have been especially appreciated. 


Perry. — Who were the ancestors of John Ferry and wife Rebecca, captured at burn- 
ing of Ft. Massachusetts, 1746, by French and Indians? Also, names of wives of John Perry,
